Vitamin C (i.e. ascorbic acid) is essential in many metabolic processes, participates in oxidation and reduction processes. Vitamin C is an antioxidant (has antioxidant properties, protects against free radicals), it is one of the reagents in the biosynthesis of collagen, folic acid, adrenal cortex hormones, steroid hormones, insulin, it also influences the metabolism of thyroxine, facilitates the absorption of iron, and stimulates immune processes. Vitamin C deficiency (e.g. after consuming excessive amounts of alcohol) results in abnormal functioning of connective tissue, disorders of synthesis and metabolism of many biological molecules, general weakness, pain in muscles and joints, bleeding from the gums and nose, gingivitis.
B vitamins are primarily responsible for the proper functioning of the nervous system, and thus - for the state of mental health. They alleviate nervous tension, have a positive effect on the mood, and improve intellectual performance. B vitamins play a very important role in metabolic processes, incl. they participate in the process of carbohydrate absorption - in the conversion of glucose into energy, which is delivered, among others, to the brain, thus improving the efficiency of the mind and improving the mood.
Magnesium is called the element of life because it participates in 300 biochemical processes in the body. It is necessary for the proper functioning of the muscular and nervous system. It contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and to restore and maintain electrolyte balance. Determines proper energy metabolism. Its deficiency can really make life difficult, causing: dizziness, anxiety, irritability, insomnia and depression.
Contains sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium salts. When administered intravenously in water and electrolyte imbalance, replenishes the deficiency of minerals and water, and briefly increases the volume of plasma. Like other solutions containing electrolytes, the solution remains briefly in the vascular system and after a short time the water and electrolytes penetrate the walls of the blood vessels and enter the body.
Ornithine is an amino acid that is extremely valuable for the body, mainly due to its properties. It is responsible for the removal of ammonia from the body by increasing the synthesis of urea, detoxifies both the liver and the brain. Ornithine has a very wide action, therefore its proper presence in the body is extremely important.
The effect of reduced blood glucose content is a feeling of weakness, headache, dizziness, and imbalance. Therefore, if the glucose level drops, it must be replenished, while remembering to measure blood glucose before administration. Other inseparable symptoms of a hangover are undoubtedly: vomiting, headaches, abdominal pain, joint pain, as well as a significant depression, sleep problems and in some cases tremors. Appropriately selected drugs, administered intravenously, reduce these symptoms to zero. The most important thing before starting the hydration and supplementation treatment is health assessment (physical and physical examination) and the assessment of parameters such as: blood glucose level, heart rate or blood pressure.
A hangover, as is well known, is caused by the consumption of an excessive amount of alcohol, which results in poisoning the body with a substance unnatural for it. The main ingredient in all "alcohol" drinks is ethanol, or ethyl alcohol. After it enters the bloodstream, it spreads very quickly throughout the body. When we drink, we experience the effects of ethanol, and only then, when sober - acetaldehyde. The sobering-up process means that the alcohol breaks down into an aldehyde, which in turn is a hangover. During drinking, huge amounts of essential minerals are flushed out of the body, mainly potassium and magnesium, which significantly disturbs its electrolyte balance.
Feeling of weakness, headaches and dizziness, difficulty in maintaining balance, irritability, sleep problems, nausea and vomiting, tremors, lack of concentration, i.e. the inherent elements of a hangover, are the result of reduced electrolytes, glucose and dehydration. Therefore, the best method of fighting a hangover is to supplement substances that are "washed out" when consuming alcohol, such as sodium, potassium, magnesium or calcium. Supplementing fluid and glucose if needed. An important aspect is also the supply of antioxidants, antioxidants, substances that metabolize alcohol and its derivatives (vitamin C, B vitamins or glutathione).
Supplementation, in the form of a drip (i.e. intravenously), with fluids and minerals, and, if necessary, taking medications, e.g. anti-emetic, analgesic and relaxing drugs dramatically improves our condition even after a very hard evening.
